Machane Tevel is Habonim Dror Perth’s senior Shabbaton style camp for years 9-12! Habo camps are a safe, open and inclusive environment where chanichim (participants) have the opportunity to learn about Judaism, Zionism, world issues and more while meeting Jews from all over the community!


Filled with educational content and fun & engaging activities, Machane Tevel will be an unforgettable experience that you won’t want to miss!


The camp will run from Friday after school until early Sunday afternoon at a campsite about an hour away from the Jewish Centre. Chanichim will be taken there and back on a bus from the Jewish centre. Due to Yom Kippur starting on the evening of the 27th, we will be back at the Jewish centre at 1pm to allow plenty of time to prepare for the chag.


Vegetarian, nut free and kosher meals and snacks will be provided every day!


If you have any question or concerns regarding the shabbaton, please contact Ruth Karotkin (Tzevet Machane).

The camp begins on Friday afternoon, when we’ll bring in Shabbat with a Kabbalat Shabbat service and dinner, followed by peulot (programs) in individual year levels.


The weekend will involve a range of fun and educational activities including more peulot in year levels, as well as whole camp activities such as a hike, ever tarbut (culture / dares night), ruach (songs and dances), and more.


In true Shabbaton style, there will also be time throughout the weekend for chanichim to just relax and spend time with each other and their madrichim (leaders).



Habo has been working closely with the top medical professionals in the state, the AZYC and other youth movements to ensure that all decisions are made in the safest framework possible. 

We, as Habo, understand that whilst WA is in a great position, social distancing and hygiene measures still remain in place and are of the utmost importance.


To provide a safe Habo environment therefore, our chanichim must be responsible enough to keep these rules, know not to attend if feeling unwell and comprehend the significance of the situation.


We are constantly regulating government changes to the COVID situation. We will let you know of any changes to the running of our camp.
